Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) is an alternative approach to machine translation, that integrates human expertise into the automatic translation process. In this framework, a human translator interacts with a translation system that dynamically offers a list of translations that best completes the part of the sentence already translated. Stochastic finite-state transducer technology is proposed to support this CAT system. The system was assessed on two real tasks of different complexity in several languages.
